Furthermore, by the end of the year, Adriatic will use only biological cleaners and support cooperation with suppliers whose products (cosmetics, printed materials and even staff uniforms) are made from natural, biological, environmentally friendly or recycled materials. Maistra is aware of the growing threat that plastic pollution poses to marine biodiversity, so they have decided to take concrete steps in their business to reduce pollution.
